Battle Of Browsers: Firefox 4 Beats IE9 In Downloads
Just a day after Mozilla launched Firefox 4, Techtree reports that competitor Google today released the beta version of its browser Chrome 11 sporting a new logo. An interesting addition to the beta is HTML5 speech input API, which developers can use to create speech-to-text web apps. More about it on the Google Chrome blog.
Already, news reports claim Firefox 4 has beaten (by a wide margin) IE9's record of 2.35 million downloads in the first 24 hours since release. Mozilla recorded 7.1 million downloads in day 1 of its release. Today, it has 14 million downloads.
Firefox 4 is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, and is also being launched for Android and Maemo soon. Meanwhile IE9 has been launched only for Windows 7 and Vista.
